Closed Public Consultation: General Regulation

This consultation has now closed.

The General Regulation (Quality Assurance; Notice of Open Meetings and Hearings; and Intubation of a Newborn)

Consultation opens December 16, 2016, Closes February 24, 2017 (10 weeks/70 days)

The College seeks to make changes to legislation and regulations to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of its programs, to respond to best practices in regulation, to remove barriers to the delivery of safe, timely and quality midwifery care, and to improve client experience in the health care system. All legislation and regulations that define and inform the practice and regulation of midwifery, and that require Ministry approval, will be reviewed. At this time, the College Council has approved the General Regulation (Quality Assurance; Notice of Open Meetings and Hearings; and Intubation of a Newborn) for a formal consultation.

The College’s General Regulation houses three parts: Quality Assurance; Notice of Open Meetings and Hearings; and Intubation of a Newborn. The College proposes to rescind the General Regulation and replace it with a Quality Assurance Regulation. To review Council’s proposed changes to the General Regulation, please refer to the consultation document where you can read the current language, the proposed new language (including proposed deletions) and the rationale for all proposed changes. Once you have fully reviewed the consultation document, please return to this page to submit your comments. All comments are reviewed before being posted publicly to ensure they meet the posting guidelines.  If you prefer to provide feedback via email, please email cmo@cmo.on.ca with ‘Public Consultation’ in the subject line.

Council will consider all feedback at their next public meeting on March 22, 2017.
